Grapes Make Me Happy!









There is something so cathartic about the process of making grape juice. For me it is the whole process of growing the grapes, picking the grapes and processing the grapes into juice. I just love it! This is the first year I have had the fun of actually growing the grapes. Even so I used to go and pick them at a little old lady's house who used to live on State Street across from Macey's. Now her house and all of the others that used to be there have been demolished and the field that used to be covered in grape vines has shiny new buildings. Progress....I guess. I will always remember her and her grapes and how hard she worked to tend them along with her aging husband.
